Trioculist

A Trioculist from Onslaught.

Trioculists were small insect-like Plasma Minions from Cryos. They attacked with melees that caused chain lightning arcs that jumped from opponent to opponent

Lore

Prowling the dark ranges and crevasses of Cryos, trioculists employ their tails for two deadly functions: night vision for hunting, and plasma-blasting for killing their prey. They are particulary dangerous for their ability to "ricochet" their lightning attack from one target to others, although each ricochet diminishes the voltage.

Strategy

  • Onslaught Variant: Trioculist
  • Triocular Scorpiod, a Special Elite from the Template Challenge
Trioculists were no danger alone, but in groups their chain-lightning attacks could get very annoying. Like most minions, simple attacks would kill them quick and easy. Make the job easier by using attacks like Goliath's Arc Weld, to take out groups of these nasty foes easily.

Although close-range could prove as a good strategy, long-range was the best way to deal with trioculists because they had to get close in order to attack you. Sage's Strangling Briars came in handy here, and just wait for the approaching trioculists and shoot at them from afar.
